A Highly Developed Nation With Creative Opportunity
Sweden enjoys a special place in Northern Europe and a very advanced economy and standard of living. Its roughly 9.5 million residents have the world’s eighth-highest per capita income. Sweden has avoided war since the early 19th century.
In 2010, Sweden ranked second as the world’s most competitive market (after Switzerland) according to the World Economic Forum. Sweden is also one of the world’s most equal countries in the terms of income, and it has the world’s third-lowest infant mortality rate.
About 85% of the population lives in urban areas, even though the country is the third-largest in the European Union in terms of land area. Stockholm is the nation’s largest city and also the capital. About 2 million Swedes live in the Stockholm metropolitan area.
A Very Advanced Economy
Considered an export-oriented economy, Sweden is heavily oriented toward foreign trade. Sweden’s engineering sector accounts for 50% of exports and output, pointing also to a very well-educated workforce. Not surprisingly, the country ranks among the highest in telephone and Internet access.
Manufacturing and technology are primary drivers of the economy. Sweden is ranked as having the best creativity in Europe for business and is expected to become a magnet for some of the world’s most purposeful workers. The largest trade partners for Sweden include Germany, the United States, the United Kingdom, Denmark and Finland.
Sweden represents an excellent opportunity for the right group to bring a leading real estate organization.
